I'm a husband to my beautiful wife, father to our children, Computer Science graduate from University of Central Arkansas. I love my wife, our children, computers, playing guitar (especially singing/playing for my wife and/or kids), bicycling (including taking my kids for rides in my bike trailer), woodworking, airbrushing, digital and traditional artistry, playing games with my family (traditional and digital), my poor Chevette that I had to sell, throwing knives, firearms, knot tying, rope making, whip making, and really just learning new stuff in general. If I don't know about it I probably want to learn about it, if only so I can make informed decisions about it.

My three favorite programming languages are Python, Lisp, and Assembly (though I'm not sure about the order of those last two languages...), and I currently develop in .NET languages, especially VB.

I think the CANSPAM act is one of the dumbest pieces of legislation in the history of the universe

Code I can write/read (where 1 is just barely, 3 is the average user, and 10 is the language designer/guru level):

  • Python - 6/10
  • C++ - 4/10
  • Perl - 3/10
  • Assembly - 3/10
  • HTML/JavaScript - 5/10
  • VB.NET - 5/10
  • C# - 5/10
  • Befunge - 2/10

comment Is there a cap on simultaneously active Wi-Fi Access points in a single area?
Interesting and related - this is why having too many APs broadcasting on the same channel causes issues. That red zone in the center? Yeah, that's where the network has the highest congestion. That's a bad thing

comment Is it possible to use different credentials for basic(?) authentication in Google Chrome?
It does, but deleting the cookie doesn't help. I think it's Chrome hanging on to the credential for some reason

The site only uses Java on the back end, @Ramhound

comment Why are special characters such as “carriage return” represented as “^M”?
I knew you could actually use ctrl+i as tab (I use it on connectbot on my phone in vim) I didn't realize that ^M works the same way, and they work basically everywhere. Cool!

comment Why is my system reading/writing to C:\windows\installer an absolute ton?
All different .msi's I'm thinking that it's possible that it was some upgrades getting pushed out (it's a corporate machine)

comment Is it possible to (and how can I) setup keychain to use forwarded agent?
The goal is to stop having to unlock my keys on my other machines - I'm perfectly happy with them storing the forwarded agent key after I log out.
